April Fool


IMG_1411We woke up Tuesday morning to about 3 inches of snow on the ground.  I think Mother Nature was playing a late (and tasteless) April Fools joke on us.  Had to pull out the snow pants and extra layers for our morning walks, but it’s supposed to be warmer for the rest of the week.

In spite of the cold snap, the Pussy Willow is budding out nicely, and the grass is starting to green up.  Will have to think about mowing before long.Pussy Willow

We had a pair of Goldfinches at the feeder yesterday, and I observed a behavior I’ve never seen before.  They seemed to be kissing.  They continued long enough for me to get several photos.  It was very cute to watch.Goldfinch PairGoldfinch PairIt seems breeding season is underway, even though the male is not fully into his Summer plumage yet!

    • At least the snow did not stick around too long, and the sun is shining today. Thanks for visiting.
